Some reports saying it was a "fireworks warehouse".


Lebanon's state-run NNA news reports that a major fire broke out in a warehouse used for storing firecrackers, near Beirut's port, and strong explosions were heard shortly afterwards.

Wedeman said the cause of the blast was "still not clear -- if it was fireworks, as some news sources are saying -- they are some damn big fireworks."

This video lends credence to the idea that it was fireworks.  You can see and hear the fireworks going off in the foreground and then comes the grand finale.

Same thing happened in the Netherlands a few years back.

Definitely fireworks for the first part, but that second explosion is insane.

Also, how are there any fireworks left on the planet after I listened to them get shot off for a month prior to July 4? :)

Seems like fireworks to me. We’ve had a couple blow in the U.S. this year too.

I'm not so sure about the fireworks angle. It looked like a mini nuke with that wave that came off of it. Plus, that was one huge burst of energy. I would think fireworks would go off one at a time not simultaneously. Fifteen years ago I remember reading about and seeing videos of similar explosions in Iraq. The scuttlebutt was that they were caused by small, tactical nukes. My proof? None of course but I'm still not completely buying into the fireworks thing.

Agree.  There is something way more to this story.   The damage is so spread out.

Fireworks setting off a store of agricultural fertilizer.

I obviously agree with WongLee on this one. That's why I posted my joke link in the first place.

A warehouse of fireworks sitting next to a large warehouse of fertilizer. What a bunch fucking morons.

With a hotel next door, no less.

A friend of mine who is ex Air force said the explosion looked very daisy cutter-ish.
